The Federal Court of Canada has issued an order to Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault to pay Rebel News founder Ezra Levant $20,000 and unblock him on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, concluding a lawsuit the latter filed in 2021.

Mr. Levant had argued in his legal challenge launched two years ago that not being able to have access to Mr. Guilbeault’s posts meant that his ability to engage in debate on matters of public concern with the minister was limited. He had argued that this limitation was violating his constitutional rights.

The lawsuit argued X, which it cited as having 192 million users, functioned as a modern public square, and that the defendants’ actions constituted a violation of free expression.
